As Assam Month continues here at Tea Guy Speaks, I thought I'd throw out a few general resources about the Assam region itself.
The Wikipedia entry for Assam gives a good overview, but only devotes a paragraph or two to tea. However there is a separate Wikipedia article devoted to Assam's most famous product.
For some armchair travel type information on Assam you might want to try the Assam Tourism site, which is a production of the region's Department of Tourism. Their Industry page takes a somewhat more in-depth look at the tea industry in the region.
If you'd like to take a crack at recreating some Assamese delicacies, perhaps to sample along with your Assam tea, try the recipe database at Assam.org.
